Didn't Epicurus live before before Christianity?

But in any event, I have been wondering if the problem is more the dogma than the deity...

Stephen Greenblatt,  from his book "The Swerve", channeling Epicurus.

'Christians are like a council of frogs in a pond, croaking at the top of their lungs, "For our sakes was the world created." '

Epicurus scoffed at Christianity because it was his target of opportunity. The same sentiment, it seems to me, applies to any theistic religion.
